This display would still be some sort of IPS/PLS manufactured by either LG or Samsung, and I'm assuming the B grade panels would still be picked up by Korean vendors and turned into a new breed of 3840x2160 Qnix/X-Star/whatever monitors.

I'm just wondering if anyone has any idea how this might affect the price of these current 1440p monitors, and how much the rebranded 4k monitors might cost.

Obviously nobody can know for sure, but I'm interested to hear people's opinions.
I don't see any possible way that these 1440p panels drop much lower than the 259.99 that the xstars were at last week, I'd say 240-250 would be the absolute bottom, IMO

I thought they'd be going up if anything. The IPS ones did.

It does say 100% tested on the ebay site and there was a letter inside the box from assecorieswhole, but, quite frankly, if a monitor with that amount of blb gets through "testing" I wouldn't give a crap on that garantuee.
That was just my personal experience though and probably some bad luck, generally I haven't read any complaints about him and he also responds very fast. I'd say, go for it, but save the money and don't go for pixel perfect.

edit: I got a x-star, but seeing as there are near to no differences between these two brands I think my input might still be relevant.
Good info, thanks. If I were to go for non pixel perfect, I would probably go for the cheaper ones because more than 1 defective pixels is the same as 1 for me.

Need to ponder some more though this old 22'' 1680x1050 monitor is starting to get on my nerves.

Just ordered a qnix from amazon.

Do I need any type of power adapter to use it?

I also got mine through Amazon and it came with the appropriate power adapter. I recall that another user on this forum did not get an adapter so be prepared to run out and grab one at an international travel supply store if they forget yours.

It should come with a Korean to U.S. plug adapter, however it will accept the standard power plug that almost every power supply and monitor have used for years. I would recommend using a spare PSU/Monitor plug rather than using the included adapter.

But no you do not NEED anything extra, it should come with everthing required to power on as well as a DVI-D cable

Thanks. What exactly would I need to get if they do not provide one?
post #5858 of 25922
Dude the power brick just takes a regular PC power cable like he said which you surely have lying around...you don't need or want to use any adapter in the first place. Just plug said reg cable into the convertor like you have with many other components you've owned.

We're referring to the power converter for Korean -> US plugs. I believe this is the type of plug you need an adapter for: http://electricaloutlet.org/type-f

Again, it should come with one but if not you should be able to find one for cheap.

I'm looking to run a second Qnix. I have the first hooked up via Dual-Link DVI-D.

My card has:
1 Dual-Link DVI-D out (in use)
1 Dual-Link DVI-I out
1 HDMI out
1 DisplayPort out

I'm assuming I will need an "Active DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI-D" cable to run the second?

If I am correct, I think the required cable to power 2 of these displays simultaneously is pretty expensive. Does anyone have any cheap cable recommendations that would allow me to run 2 of these displays?

Hopefully I'm wrong!
